How To Handle Data Fields Larger Than 255 Characters
Last updated on APRIL 22, 2009
Applies to:Oracle Communications ASAP - Version: 5.2.4
Information in this document applies to any platform.
For instance when have the following scenarios:
1) The upstream system was sending an attribute whose length was 512 and the order was failing
because of length restriction.
2) We had to fetch some data from IPSA and modify it and then update IPSA again. When the length
of data (CONFIG_POLICY_CONTENT_VALUE - XML data type) exceeds 255, the characters are stripped while sending it back.
A varchar2 field (which is storing the value of ASDL parameters) can support more than 255 (in
oracle 8 and higher) and we need A5 to support it.
